The Dubuque Community YMCA/YWCA publically announced the beginning of their Building for the Future, A “Y” for All capital campaign. Chad Chandlee, President and COO, Kendal Hunt Publishing and campaign co-chair, said the Building for the Future Campaign is really not about a new facility; it’s about what the facility does.”
President and CEO of the Dubuque Community YMCA/YWCA, Sharon Covey said, “This facility will serve as a community center, providing gathering space for other nonprofits and community groups.”
Total project costs are currently estimated at about $20 million. The Building for the Future Campaign is seeking to secure the funding through multi-year pledge commitments from businesses, foundations, families, and individuals throughout the tri-state area. “While the campaign is securing commitments and pledges, we will continue programing and planning the new facility,” stated Tim Conlon, President and CEO, Conlon Construction Co. “The plan is to complete the design by the end of the year.” Then in the spring of 2019, the ground breaking will take place. Furthermore, he said they will welcome the community to the new Dubuque Community YMCA/YWCA facility in the fall of 2020.
